Sectors:  Diable/Cretes
A good mid-level blue run, in an area often missed by those preoccupied with heading directly to the upper sectors.

Running parallel to the nearby Bellecombes 4 run, and served by the fast 6-seater Bellecombes chairlift, it offers novice-to-intermediate standard visitors a great opportunity to focus on building their confidence and skills. There are plenty of crossover points with the neighbouring pistes, presenting a good selection of different lines to tackle in this wide snow-sure bowl, all within easy reach of the Toura 2600 sector interchange & services hub.

The entrance to the run is wide & easy, the gentlest slope angle is found on the skier's lefthand side of the piste. The short mid-section is the steepest part, before the slope eases out down towards the point where it joins the Bellecombes 3 which [together with a spur of the neighbouring Bellecombes 4] swoops in from the skier's right: you can either sweep out to the skier's left to join this for the official blue-graded exit route, or continue descending on the fall-line for a more testing shortcut to join the principal Jandri 3 piste ahead below.

All of these routes finish by merging with the Jandri 3, which then funnels through a chicane of speed-control netting before flowing out on to a very gentle straight, heading directly across the flat Lac du Plan tarn depression to link with the Bellecombes chairlift.

Other onward options from this area include swinging to the skier's right just above the Lac du Plan, to take the Fée 2 track towards La Fée 2100; or, simply continuing straight on past the Bellecombes chairlift base terminal to pick up the Jandri 2 track into the Thuit Coomb and towards Cretes 2100.
